China Is Launching It's Own Version Of Wikipedia by asifawarley(m): 8:27am On May 17
Communist Party commissions Chinese Encyclopaedia publishers to produce web version overseen by team of scholars, with heavy censorship widely predicted
Louise Watt Thursday 4 May 2017

It'll be free. It'll be uniquely Chinese. It'll be an online encyclopaedia to rival Wikipedia — but without the participation of the public. And don't expect entries on “Tiananmen Square 1989” or “Falun Gong spiritual group” to come up in your searches, either.

Scholars and experts hand-picked by Beijing to work on the project say only they will be able to make entries — the latest example of the Chinese government's efforts to control information available on the internet.

The scholars say truth is their guiding light, and their editing and review process is a rigorous one. If there is a difference of opinion, a committee should figure it out, said Zhang Baichun, chief editor of the history of science and technology section.


“Of course, science does not come from democratic votes, to convince others you will have to present the most convincing proof,” he told The Associated Press.

The effort to compile 300,000 entries that span science, literature, politics and history is being led by the ruling Communist Party's central propaganda department, which guides public opinion through instructions to China's media, internet companies and publishing industry as well as overseeing the education sector. They have instructed the Encyclopaedia of China Publishing House, known for its offline Chinese Encyclopaedia, to produce it.

Don't believe every junk you read. Wikipedia (for mobile devices) works properly in China. Attached is a screen shot I just captured off my phone. Regarding China's ambitious plans for its own version of Wikipedia, I think it is a step in the right direction for them. I wish Nigeria would borrow a leaf from China on how to run a country effectively, and make it a force to reckon with.

China bans these sights and you think it's because they don't know of what they're doing?

You are on every social media platform and online major websites wondering how social and blessed you are. Unknown to you is that you traded your privacy the moment you opened an account with these sites. Ever read their T&C or wondered why your GPS location is almost automatically turned on by certain apps?

China and other world powers realize the power SM wields which is why the allow little or no exposure to these sites. Not because they're backwards but because theyre forward thinking.

They created wechat because of whatsapp, and then blocked whatsapp

Same with baidu.

They only created alternatives.

WhatsApp, Google and Facebook came before wechat and baidu and their other alternatives
